Deficiency in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a brain-essential omega-3 fatty acid, is associated with cognitive decline.zs
Omega-3 and Cognitive Function
A role for docosahexaenoic acid-derived neuroprotectin D1 in neural cell survival and Alzheimer disease.
Are neurodegenerative disorder and psychotic manifestations avoidable brain dysfunctions with adequate dietary omega-3?
An adequate N-3 diet will probably prevent most psychotic episodes and prove that neurodegenerative disorder with dementia is also to a large extent not only preventable but avoidable.
Cognitive and physiological effects of Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation in healthy subjects.
Omega-3 supplementation is associated with an improvement of attentional and physiological functions, particularly those involving complex cortisonal processing.
Dietary PUFA supplements reduce memory deficits but not CA1 ischemic injury in rats.
Taken together, these results suggest that fish oil supplemented diet exerts beneficial effect on ischemia-induced spacial memory deficits.
Fish oil supplementation of control and (n-3) fatty acid-deficient male rats enhances reference and working memory performance and increases brain regional docosahexaenoic acid levels.
Rats fed the omega-3 fatty acid-deficient diet showed significantly poorer reference and working memory [...]. Furthermore, FO supplementation during brain development and adulthood in normal rats resulted in significant enhancement of both.
